It's that time of the week again, and today's blog is a really interesting one.
We have recently done our latest photoshoot in Greenwich with Jenny Thornton (shots soon to come! check out Jenny's work on Instagram @jenslivemusicphotography), and as a part of that photoshoot we went to Casbah Records, a charming vintage records store, and as well as a few shots each of us also recorded a video with our top three picks at the store.
These videos will be released weekly and this week's video as published on our socials was Cam`s! So let's dig a little deeper and get to know a little more about those albums.
But first let’s tell you a little about Casbah Records (check them out on casbahrecords.co.uk).
Casbah Records is South-East London’s premier independent record shop.
They are choc-full to the brim with top quality new and vintage vinyl, new cds, dvds, books, comics and t-shirts. They may also be one of the last shops in London to stock 8-track cartridges, plus listening facilities for them!
They cover everything from R.N.R, R.N.B, surf, soul, prog rock, folk, rock, blues, reggae, jazz, afrobeat, psychedelia to hip-hop, punk, indie and electronica.
They take a keen interest in contemporary music and have a great selection of new releases on vinyl and cd plus all the classic and hard to find reissues.
This is an amazing record shop you have to go to if you like music!
Now on to Cam’s top three picks:
Metallica`s Kill 'Em All
Kill 'Em All is the debut studio album by American heavy metal band Metallica, released on July 25, 1983, through the independent label Megaforce Records. Metallica began by playing shows in local clubs in Los Angeles.
Cro-Mags` The Age of Quarrel
The Age of Quarrel is the first album by the New York hardcore band Cro-Mags. It was released on then-independent Profile Records in September 1986. It was subsequently re-released by Another Planet in 1994, along with the band's second album, Best Wishes, on the same disc.
Slayer`s Haunting the Chapel
Haunting the Chapel is an extended play released by American thrash metal band Slayer in 1984 through Metal Blade and Enigma Records. Slayer's debut album Show No Mercy became Metal Blade's highest-selling, leading to producer Brian Slagel wanting to release an EP.
And that's it guys! This is the first of a series of blogs about our members top finds at Casbah Records, stay tuned for more.
